Man, you are right on with that one.

When I read "The Pearl" I was in high school.  Now that I have kids, I think that story would really harsh my Powerball-winning buzz.

Re: The Wisdom of Jack Handey

Those are great.  :)

I remember these bits from Saturday Night Live.  I have this memory of assuming Jack Handey was a made-up character read in Phil Hartmann's voice.  Not true!  I looked up "Jack Handey" only to learn that he's been a real guy all this time.

Re: I don't want to win the Powerball lottery

What I worry about is my family becoming a kidnapping and ransom target.  If you have half a billion dollars, you become a very tempting target for theft and plunder. Yes, I could spend some of the money in order to make my life a fortress.  But I enjoy flying under the radar, and a jackpot like thi...

Re: Lucid Dreaming

I'll have to try the nose-pinch thing, but then again in my dreams I usually don't have any awareness of my body.  I don't think I've ever seen any of my body parts during a dream (hands, arms, feet, legs, reflection).  It's more like a movie shot with a POV camera. Yeah I generally have a first-pe...

Re: Lucid Dreaming

* Last day of high school.  Graduation time!  Except that, for some odd reason, I forgot to take that final year of English.  No graduation for me. These are the worst!   Although I'm sorry for your misery, I'm glad I'm not alone with these.  For me, it's always the day of the final, I've never att...

Re: Lucid Dreaming

We started veering into the area of lucid dreaming in the Garden of Eden thread, and I thought I'd dig up the original lucid dreaming thread and post here. Quick summary of where I stand with lucid dreaming: I really studied up since starting this thread, got way into it, and have had quite a large ...

Re: A Temple in the Garden of Eden?

Wow, 90 lucid dreams, that is incredible!  I'm still recording my dreams, but no lucids. I'm glad you're still recording your dreams!  That's great.  Just bringing back my basic dream recall has been pretty awesome.  It was something I let lie dormant for much of my life and I hadn't realized what ...

Re: A Temple in the Garden of Eden?

Nope, the actual date is much older, like 6000 BC or 10,000 BC.  I don't have a source, but I'm sure its Googleable. :o  Not this again!  I'm having flashbacks! This reminds me of this old thread: http://gyroscopicinvesting.com/forum/index.php?topic=2352.msg31365;topicseen#msg31365 Gumby and LoneWo...

Re: Rebalancing... Hormones?

I am! And get this... Despite her initial disgust, I let my wife try the glasses after a few nights of dirty looks and she noticed that using them for even 10 minutes before bed improved her sleep. She actually used to wake up with night terrors, startled and confused, in the middle of the night. (...

Re: Rebalancing... Hormones?

I got my pair of blue wavelength-blocking glasses a while back and I've been enjoying them!  I use them during my period of wakefulness after first sleep.  (Called "wake back to bed" in lucid dreaming circles.)  I've enjoyed being able to do things like read on the Kindle Fire without worrying that ...
